At the height of the Cold War between 1963 and 1980, in the United States near Tucson, Arizona, there were 18 silos with nuclear-armed Titan-2 ICBMs in operation.
After the end of the Cold War, the underground structures were decommissioned and put up for sale to private individuals. As a result, according to the Arizona Daily Star, in 2002 a certain Rick Ellis purchased one of the mines for $ 200, 000.
Last Friday, Ellis put it up for sale at $ 395, 000, but the property itself looks very deplorable: you can go down only a 12-meter retractable staircase, and the interior walls are covered with peeling lead paint.
However, those wishing to purchase such an unusual property in order to turn it into a doomsday refuge will still have to convince the current owner to part with it.
And these are not empty words - Rick Ellis has already turned down two potential buyers, one of whom intended to use the bunker as a greenhouse for marijuana, and the other as a post-apocalyptic porn studio.
